'NEWTOWN' Film Screening

Wed, Jan 18, 2017 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

  • Price: Free
"NEWTOWN" chronicles the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history: a shooting that took the lives of 20 elementary school children and six educators in Newtown, Connecticut, on Dec. 14, 2012.
Filmed over the course of three years, the film weaves together powerful and honest testimonials from parents, teachers, school staff, first responders and clergy members grappling with the tragedy. Taken together, their stories document a traumatized community whose resilience and sense of purpose is as powerful as its grief.
The film bears witness not only to a community seeking healing in the midst of national media attention, but to all that is left to cope with after the cameras leave.
The Wellesley Action Alliance will host a free screening of the film followed by an open discussion regarding safety in schools and in the community. State Rep. Alice Peisch will be in attendance.

Wellesley, MA 02482
